(Tech Mainstream) The Apple iPhone SE 2022 is one of Apple's least expensive iPhone's ever produced combined with exceptional capabilities and performance at an incredible price.

In Apple's own words, the Apple iPhone SE 2022 is succinctly described as:

"The most affordable iPhone features the powerful A15 Bionic, 5G, better battery life, improved durability, and a new camera system with advanced features like Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, and Deep Fusion."

For the price, the Apple iPhone SE 2022 shares some of the features of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 such as the same back material. Other features include a 4.7-inch Display, an aerospace-grade aluminum and glass design, IP67 rating for water and dust resistance and Home button with Touch ID.

Another feature shared with the iPhone 13 is the lightning-fast A15 Bionic chip. The A15 Bionic quickens launching apps and makes handling demanding tasks easier:

"A15 Bionic packs a powerful 6-core CPU, the fastest CPU in a smartphone, with two high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, making iPhone SE up to 1.8x faster than iPhone 8, and even faster compared to older models. The 16-core Neural Engine is capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second, enabling faster machine learning computations for third-party applications, as well as unlocking features for iPhone SE like Live Text in the Camera app with iOS 15 and on-device dictation. Perfect for photography, gaming, and augmented reality experiences, A15 Bionic makes every action feel fluid."

The A15 Bionic also improves battery life by working in conjunction with the latest-generation battery chemistry and integration with iOS 15:

"iOS 15 enhances the iPhone experience with more ways to stay connected, powerful updates that help users focus and explore, and intelligent features to get more done with iPhone."

The iPhone SE supports Qi-certified chargers for wireless charging, and fast charging.

Powered by the A15 Bionic, iPhone SE sports an all-new camera system 12-megapixel ƒ/1.8 aperture Wide camera that offers incredible computational photography benefits, including Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, Deep Fusion, and Portrait mode. One exciting aspect of the iPhone SE is Deep Fusion which "uses advanced machine learning to do pixel-by-pixel processing, optimizing for texture, details, and noise in every part of the photo."

iPhone SE 2022 uses 5G for a faster internet experience and quality connectivity:

"5G allows users to take advantage of the latest generation of wireless technology, with faster uploads and downloads, lower latency, and better experiences in more places — like seeing family with higher-quality HD FaceTime calls, even when on cellular data and not on Wi-Fi."

Environmental concerns are also taken into consideration with the iPhone SE:

"Made with recycled materials, including 100 percent recycled rare earth elements in the Taptic Engine and audio magnets, 100 percent recycled tungsten in the Taptic Engine, and 100 percent recycled tin in the solder of the main logic board. Redesigned packaging eliminates the outer plastic wrap, bringing Apple closer to its goal of completely removing plastic from all packaging by 2025."
